Seven films are competing for the final three nominations to be announced January 25 in the makeup category for the Oscars. The Academy’s makeup branch will vote on January 22 after seeing ten-minute excerpts from each of the seven shortlisted films. These prizes are about live-action makeup, often involving non-digitally enhanced wounds, aging and transformation. The final three in all likelihood will be Alice in Wonderland, The Fighter and The Wolfman.
The films in alphabetical order are:
“Alice in Wonderland”
“The Way Back”
